William Oxley Thompson Livery from Pomerene Hall Roof

I visited the Ohio State campus November 1, 2015, with Ruth Ann (her first visit) and two of my three brothers an their wives (Jim and Claudia, Ted and Beth), my first time on campus in more that 25 years; besides walking around the Oval, went to two areas just off the Oval: (1) Wexner Center & Mershon Auditorium at the NE corner and (2) Mirror Lake at the SW corner. At the end of the afternoon, we stopped at Ohio Stadium (much expanded from my years on campus). Larger trees blocking views of some buildings along the Oval were among the noticeable changes. William Oxley Thompson Memorial Library, OSU's main library, named for 5th president, who served 26 years, 1899-1925; original building dates from 1913, enlarged 1947-51, enlarged again 1977 & 2009; newest addition is on W side, which, sadly, we didn't see; stacks tower of library seen across Mirror Lake from roof of Pomerene Hall; Mirror Lake & Mirror Lake Hollow still beautiful campus area, S of Oval at Neil Ave; from roof of Pomerene Hall on SW side of lake; at 2nd-floor level, I always liked this view when attending OSU
